Michael Jackson's mother has failed in her bid to keep her allowance from her late son's estate private - a court in Los Angeles has ordered the details of the payments to be made public.
Katherine Jackson was granted permanent custody of the singer's three children, Prince Michael, 12, Paris, 11, and seven-year-old Prince Michael II, aka Blanket, following his tragic death in June (09).
In August (09) a judge allowed the 79 year old's request for an allowance from Jackson's estate to help provide for the kids.
Katherine has since fought to keep her finances quiet, with her lawyer Burt Levitch arguing, "A bottom line dollar figure would make life more difficult for Katherine Jackson, it would create a feeding frenzy."
But a judge in L.A. ruled against her on the grounds of public interest on Wednesday (09Sep09) - paving the way for the figures to be revealed.
However, Judge Mitchell Beckloff has conceded to keep the details of what the money is spent on out of the public domain.
The court will make a decision in the next few days over whether Katherine can contest the executors of her son's estate - John Branca and John MCClain - without losing her 40 per cent stake because of a no contest clause in Jackson's will, according to Radar Online.

It's truly unbelievable that Katherine Jackson has to tell the world about her personal allowance just because the public is interested in knowing. Unbelievable. So is she gonna be "a vegetable" too, served up for public consumption, like Michael sang?

Why shouldn't Katherine Jackson make the money she receiving public. Its not her money anyway. Even though I believe she is the fairest one in the Jackson Group, she never worked a day in her life. When you accept the famous image you accept the life style. Janet Jackson is the only one that has made a good career, without the assistance of Michael Jackson's $$$ money. These Jackson Brother tours, interviews, book, comebacks, and memorabilia sale are vital to ALL the Jackson's lively hood. Have you seen a recent Brother Jackson HIT LATELY??
